    Hey guys I'm trying to update my firmware cause my dji app keeps telling me I need to. But I update my drone and controller and it tells me it's the identical one in the drone already. But my app tells me I need to update? Any help would be great thanks! ROLL TIDE!

    You sure it's not the battery that it's indicating needs updating? You have multiple batteries, and updated all of their firmware?

    Could you please give me a dummy crash course in updating the battery?

    I've downloaded the new update. Put the sd card with only the update on it in the drone and also a thumb drive in the remote. Both say it's identical to the firmware on it.

    If it's the battery, put on SD card and turn on Drone. It will automatically update the battery, do this for all batteries.

    In the root of your sd card. Turn on the p3 and thats it.

    1. Why are you putting the thumb drive in the remote? The newer versions update the remote through the DJI GO app.
    2. What does the .txt file on the SD card on the camera say after the update?

    It says I need to update to 1.6 but when I do it tells me it's identical but my app tells me I need to update.

    Does it say the aircraft or RC firmware needs to be updated?

    Might help if you post a picture of the screen and the results of the P3X_FW_RESULT_AB.TXT file.
